Valuable benefits of a workplace choir


Why do group singers feel such a ‘buzz’?

Group singing triggers the release of all 4 ‘happiness hormones’ in the body: dopamine, serotonin (associated with feelings of exhilaration and contentment), endorphins and oxytocin. The importance and significance of oxytocin must not be underestimated here. This hormone is usually released during physical contact and has been found to promote trust and togetherness, whilst reducing stress and anxiety. Group singing is one of very few ways to produce significant levels of oxytocin without physical contact, which makes it an ideal activity for workplaces. Singing in a choir is one of very few ways to produce high levels of oxytocin without physical contact.

As well as the invaluable release of beneficial hormones, group singing reduces levels of cortisol in the body. Cortisol has been called ‘the stress hormone’. Singing increases lung capacity, improves posture, boosts the immune system and increases mental alertness due to greater oxygenation. These benefits are further enhanced by the warmups and exercises associated with choral rehearsals.

Thanks Keara! Just wanted to let you know our singing group have learned, benefited so much from your huge bank of knowledge in singing with us over the past five months. Keep up the good work!
